Apologies for the gorgeous top-quote :/

1) In terms of ownership we could either go for JS ownership and delete the QObject when we're done. Or we just make it a child of the view and also delete when we're done.

2) I think the engine can handle loads inbetween. But yeah, that's worth an audit.

This changes the usage to the following pattern:


I'm the author of the current implementation and I think this will be
a real improvement.

Couple of questions: who will delete the request objects (maybe
themselves when answer function called...)?
And do we expect to webView be in a "consistent" state in the meantime
-- IOW is it fine to call webView.load() before answering the request?
